Ocean Views and the Big Boys

When we arrived Tuesday night, we were tired and just wanted to have a light dinner and relax. When I put dinner in the microwave, power went out. I tried again, and again.. Uh oh, had to pull out the pans and cook on stovetop. After eating we turned on the fireplace to warm up the place, off goes the power again. We were just too tired to do anything about it so decided to wait it out until morning. 

First thing in the morning, we went to the office to explain our problem. They were quite surprised as other folks had just left the site same day. They were also very nice and offered to give us another site with 50amp for the same price. I hate packing it all up but it turned out for the better, as we had been on a 30amp site.  Once all that was taken care of, it was time to go out to see some sights.

First stop was to pick up a burger at Burger King and sit at the beach and enjoy the view…

We ended our day at a local casino.  Wednesday is the prime rib buffet for 9.99.. It was really quite good. Of course there was the usual gambling, but only for awhile. We were both quite tired and headed back home after a busy day.
